After being a long admirer of Spellbinderie, I splurged to buy a custom guestbook for my upcoming wedding. I couldn't be happier with my book - it's absolutely beautiful! Karen is a true professional - the book is incredibly well made with such attention to detail. Karen was extremely helpful and walked me through every step of the order process/custom design choices.

The shipping was fast for an international order - I received the book less than 10 days after Karen notified me of the shipment which was such a great surprise.

I am thrilled with my book and can't wait to share it with my wedding guests. It will be a treasured keepsake.

Karen's work is IMPECCABLE. She is extremely helpful, quick to respond, and translated an idea into a tangible, incredible piece of art. She helped me provide a beautiful, one of a kind gift for my friends - a printed copy of their wedding transcript with black and white photo. The condition of the journal and binding are breathtaking. I couldn't have imagined a better gift and thanks to Karen, she made that a reality. Thank you!

I offer two types of exposed spine bindings, Coptic for smaller light weight books and Raised Support for larger, heavier books. These exposed spine binding offer flexibility and beautiful design options for rebound books. Due to the nature of rebinding old books, the original spine must be destroyed in most cases.

•For guestbooks/journals: Your text is due no later than one week prior to your ship by date •For plaques: Your text is due as soon as you order Please check your Etsy messages regularly to approve drafts. Unfortunately text sent later than stated above or not approved in a timely manner may result in a delayed ship by date.
There are two reasons I use the exposed binding for my rebound books. 1. Often the old fabric that covers the spine is too fragile 2. Proper technique. Most old books have rounded spines rather than flat. To properly rebind these old books, it's necessary to make a new rounded spine, not a flat spine. This method also requires perfectly matching the original spine's width which dictates the page count. If the new text block doesn't fit the old spine the way it should, the book will not open and function correctly long term. I offer exposed spines for my rebound work due to its beauty combined with practicality and most of all to ensure you receive a rebound book that will last.
